Two brothers from Aarhus have been found guilty of sending one of their number for terrorism training in Somalia and have both been sentenced to three years and six months in prison.

Both men have immediately appealed the sentence.

The 19 and 24 year-old brothers were found guilty of arranging training for the older brother at an al-Shabaab training camp in Somalia. The 19-year-old purchased the airline ticket for his brother and gave him his passport.

The court found that the 24-year-old had been at a training camp for several months until March 2012 where he learnt to carry out terrorist activities. His 19-year-old brother was sentenced for having helped his brother take part in training.

It is the first time in Denmark that a section under Denmark’s anti-terrorism laws on training for terrorism have been used.

The Aarhus court said that there was no indication that the purpose for the 24-year-old’s sojourn at the training camp was in order to join al-Shabaab’s battle against the current Somali government and its troops.

The court concluded, therefore, that the purpose for his stay was to gain skills in order to carry out terrorism activities outside Somalia.

Both brothers have maintained they are innocent of the charges against them.
